Situated on King Street the Monaco is convenient and centrally located in order to enjoy all of the wonderful shops/stores in the immediate area. The pet friendly environment makes not only the guests happy but our four legged friends, as well. The hotel rooms are eloquent, quiet and pleasing to the eye. The indoor pool and fitness center are spectacular. The lobby is warm and inviting. The Monaco's hotel staff are friendly and helpful. I can't wait for our next visit.

Room Tip: The King Deluxe is roomy and extremely comfortable.

Here for just two nights and could not be more happy with the Location. The rooms and lobby look just like the pictures. Haven't had a chance to try the restaurant for food, but the cocktails were great! Hotel Monaco seems like the perfect place to stay in Old Town!

The Hotel Monaco was the perfect place to stay in the heart of Old Town. The hotel is lovely, rooms clean and modern. I've never been to a hotel where there were dogs in the lobby almost all the time - it is extremely satisfying to stay at such a quality hotel that treats dogs as a member of the family and does not charge extra for them. Old Town is lovely and the Monaco is in an excellent location, close to shops restaurants, parks, etc. I do need to warn dog owners who have dogs that are particular about needing grass to do their business that there are no grass areas right by the hotel, but there are several parks within a few blocks of the hotel that are quite nice.

We've stayed at the Hotel Monaco four of the past five years during the winter holiday break. Every stay has been wonderful. The hotel staff is always kind and helpful, the rooms are nice and clean, and the location is perfect (including the public parking lot a block away). If you're staying here with kids there's an indoor pool, which can be especially helpful on a cold winter day. And the goldfish in the room was a nice touch for the kids, as well. In addition, the hotel runs a shuttle up to the Metro station. Lots of nice shops and restaurants along King Street. Highly recommended.

Just returned from a wonderful overnight stay. We had the King Premier with the large tub. (room 501) Loved the size. Not a great view but no problem. We had the pup with us. They had a bowl and bed set in the room. Efficient check in and valet parking. Great wine reception at 5pm in the lobby . Met some wonderful people and very well behaved pups. Our bed was so cozy and the room was so quiet. I did not hear a thing and I am a light sleeper. (we had requested a quiet location.) Loved the ambiance of the hotel and their Christmas decorating. Felt so happy!!! Enjoyed Alexandria on an amazingly warm day (74 degrees!) Will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We loved the King Premier room (501) No major view but very quiet. We could see some of the rooms...

Dear Connie06,

Thank you for staying with us! I can't guarantee that you will hit a 70 degree day in December here that often, but I do feel confident that you will enjoy the hotel and the service from the staff!

Glad that you experienced both this time, and look forward to your next visit.

Take care,

Located in old Alexandria, the hotel is walking distance from many attractions and (more importantly) restaurants.
Kimpton service is fantastic - friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff.
Room was very comfortable. I normally don't sleep well in hotels, but for some reason I got a great night sleep every one of the three nights I spent there.
Gym is small, but modern, and if you like to swim there is a large heated indoor swimming pool.
